Good grief looks like everyone's bringing out some hardcore shit for ff.

All I done is added some chunkier tyres to my bike.

Oh cool, I've got the same bag. The Velcro straps fail at the stitching due to lipo weight, but the zips are still going strong.
I intend to heat bend some perspex over the top bar as a holder for them to mount to.
You interested in something like that?

What have you managed to fit inside of the bag?

Steel front forks there Beastie. They'd take a lot of torque.
Hint hint.

Joe. Is that 84V hot, or nominal. The controller on my old bike might go that high. I wrote down the range somewhere in the files I gave you with the bike. In fact the spreadsheet that explains the limits should all be there so with a quick resistor mod you should be able to tweak it to suit. I was running a 16s LiFe + 6s LiPo = 58.4 + 25.2 = 83.6V.

Hey Adrian!

84 hot off the charger
Funny I been looking at that Lyen Mini Monster today and thinking it should be able to handle it... damn blast n etceteras, got too many computers and cant remember where I left the files... I'll find em ...and thankyou!...

Hey the Beastie! don't stress mah man, my Shop Bike racer will be in the same class as you n Merlin's... I am running 14s (58v) so a bit more power n have rear disc on it now, but I reckon the higher torque at lower speed of your beast will shine on the goat track.

You interested in something like that?

What have you managed to fit inside of the bag?
I got 10s 8ah zippy dat doo dahs in
You talking about my frame pannier bags? I bought this one, well I bought two and chucked the useless mini bags.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Cycling-Bicy ... 0942344%26
These easily fit 4 x Turnigy 6S-5000mah (15cm x 5 x5) lipos for each bag for a total of 8 lipos.
Only down side is you got to buy two, but still a bargain for a total of $20. These have been pretty solid for me, I use the inside velcro/strap bits to connect two of them together as the middle bit to rest on the frame tube top.
These were one of the first frame tube bags I bought and after trying a whole bunch of other ones these have been the best (as long as you buy two)
The only serious mod I have done to them was to glue a "velcro handle bar stem strap" to the end/front part so the bags can sit at the top part of the frame near the handle bar stem and not slide back towards me, no serious glue needed to hold that.

You can see I also overlap the whole thing with a strechy strap, thats mainly to squeeze it in to be narrower but its not really needed.

That's the one.

WOW!
420Wh a bag, that is just amazing....
I only have 280Wh.....dam 8ah packs and their clunkyness!

Do you hit your knees on the bags while riding? You seem to have good clearance, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I ended up testing my idea, it came out super solid. I'd offer to make you one for yours but currently don't have the time.

Don't thing I will be racing next weekend. Had a silly stack yesterday and hurt my shoulder. Got to take it easy for a couple of weeks. The ride was worth it though - two summits, some snow and heaps of the finest singletrack in Aus 8)

FT MIA 4 FF :-(

Post by mmerlin » Apr 20, 2013 8:25 pm

Sorry to hear about the stackerooni FT

Take it easy

And time to get a new helmet!

Very nice tent/bike photo, has a great feel

As for the rest of you Motor Frockers...

If FT is MIA 4 FF the playing field for 2 wheelers is somewhat levelled... although T3sla's build is looking kinda grunty

Lets hope we get beautiful weather like this weekend is

Nar I don't have clearance issues, I got it that way instead of using triangle bags for the sake of easy removal as I always take off my batteries to charge. Yeah your mount setup looks pretty cool/clean, yeah don't worry about me I am satisfied with what I got.

Ouch, nice stack FT. Looks like you knocked yourself black and blue from that photo :lol:
No concussion ? Usually hitting your helmet hard enough to break it results in a good deal of that inertia being transferred through to your melon.

Thanks for the comments.

No concussion, the helmet might have been weakened from another stack a month ago. It was right at the end of the ride on a relatively easy spot. The camera wasn't recording at the time. I'll edit a quick video of the rest of the ride. Shoulder is getting better - rode to work today (wearing a full face helmet) it only hurts a little from pulling on the bars.

I will def come and perhaps do the timing on the race day. Will bring an air horn :)

I thought it was Sunday the 28th

I dont mind 27th, but we need to all be there on the same day preferably

Not quite at the stage yet where FF runs an entire weekend ;-)

Which day are we racing?

Going back a few pages discussion was 28th

However I just checked a few forecast websites, and Saturday 27th looks to be the nicer rain-free day.

never mind dude, I'm sure there'll be others...

On that note my sponsered racer/shopbike is available for racing... happy to lend it out, with brief instructions for racing or will race it myself... still planning on pit duties/ tech suppurt/get you limping home... and if the numbers turning up warrants it, am happy to dedicate to pits/marshalling...

Hey Full-throttle (see I am POLITE!) do you need a lift? spare seat in the van and I don't mind swinging round to whatever god forsaken suburb you live in to pick you up...
